As you'll discover on our Paris Mysteries & Legends Free Tour, Paris is much more than just the City of Love. This city's countless squares and alleyways have witnessed murder, plagues, war and corruption, and you'll learn all about this darker side of Paris on our tour.
Paris Mysteries & Legends Free Tour
The tour will take us on a journey through Paris' historic centre. One of our stops will be the Notre Dame Cathedral. Although nowadays Paris is famous for its culture, art, fashion and romance, this was not always the case. You'll find out about the Alchemy of Notre Dame, and more legends about the devils and gargoyles.
We'll learn about the legend of the barber and the baker of Rue Chanoinesse, and discover the origins of Paris' Catacombs. You'll be glad to hear that this tour takes place at dusk, the ideal time to relive these legends and bring them to light.
Other places we'll visit include the Saint Jacques Tower, the Hôtel de Ville (the Paris Town Hall), La Cociergerie, and Rue chat qui peche. You'll also learn about the history of Nicholas Flamel.
Free tours do not have a fixed price, rather each person offers the guide the amount they consider appropriate, depending on their level of satisfaction.
The activity takes place with a guide that speaks in English.
